Build and Skin Colour: Slightly above average build, with Caucasian skin
Facial Features and Eye Colour: Prominent nose, however, not as to make the face displeasing. Brown eyes.
Hair Colour and Style: Unkempt tan hair, however, always under a hat when cooking.
Distinguishing Features: None especially, but with frequent cuts on fingers due to missing with the cooking knives.
Personality: Cranebeinn is not your typical cook… Although he enjoys his own meals, others do not always describe his food as the usual fare. His cooking is always a new experience no matter who is eating it, even for the few returning customers. He has, however, many fans and has been known to produce fine dining on occasion. He is generally a jovial person, who is kind to his friends, but may seem cold initially. Is not generally tolerant of failure.
Likes: Jokes and food. Foreign cooking.
Dislikes: Failure, insults to his cooking, and “spongy cornmeal.”
Goals: Cook the best “squishy cornmeal” in the galaxy.
Born in Kyoto, Cranebeinn was raised well by his family and eventually gained a love for cooking when he accidentally made crane leg soup by attempting to quell a wild crane attack by placing it in a pot of boiling water. Afterwards, he realized that it must have been a misunderstanding, but upon sampling the soup, he quickly forgot his regrets. It is rumored that during his tenure at a diner, he learned to throw knives effectively along with using a variety of other cooking utensils. There are no witnesses. These rumors have quelled many fights in the restaurants where he works. Once while at the Galactic Cooking Convention, he overheard a conversation about the greatest meal ever. It included something called “squishy cornmeal.” While he isn't exactly sure what “squishy cornmeal” entails, he is avid in his attempts to make it. Now, Cranebeinn has grown a longing for adventure as well as cooking.
Culinary: Famous for his delicious yet unusual meals, Cranebeinn has mastered the cooking arts as well as the utensils.
Biology: Crane's knowledge of edible plants and animals has been invaluable in his many inventive dishes.
Entertainment: Due to his love of fun, his cooking has practically become a spectator sport through his antics in the kitchen. He favors pyrotechnics.
Fighting: Rumors, mostly… In all seriousness, Crane has learned to throw knives and brawl with other utensils, as he carries most of the light ones with him (eg pan bashing).
Medical: He is able to make (generally) good guesses on how to use herbs for medicine. The patients usually turn out all right, but the rest can't complain…
Mathematics: Cranebeinn received basic mathematics training in college, including algebra and trigonometry.
Communication: Crane is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, starships, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. He is fluent in English. He can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports and fill forms.
First character, any help would be appreciated. This character is meant for the ISC Phoenix. Cranebeinn is a Norse name meaning “crane leg.” This makes the soup ironic.
